Tool is available at auto parts stores everywhere... be sure that there is no dirt or debris in the connections. The latching springs are easy to damage leaving a suspect connection. Be careful, this line may be under pressure.. unplugging the inertia switch or fuel pump relay and starting the motor will reduce this pressure.

There is a spot on the engine to relieve fuel pressure. Looks sorta like a tire stem. The tool is inexpensive. Buy at a parts store. Ask the clerk to show you how.
